    Okay, this is my first time posting outside the Toy Sightings section, so I hope I’m not posting old news. I searched for “eToys Catalog” and didn’t come up with anything so here goes.

    I received my 2008 Holiday eToys Catalog in the mail today, and page 105 is entirely dedicated to Transformers.

    It shows the following:

    Universe 25th Anniversary Optimus Prime
    Animated Supreme Optimus Prime
    Movie Premium Optimus Prime
    Movie Premium Megatron
    Animated Leader Ultra Magnus
    Animated Leader Bulkhead
    Animated Leader Megatron
    Animated Leader Black & Purple Repainted Megatron
    Animated Leader Green & Beige Repainted Ultra Magnus

    Here is a scan of the page

    [​IMG]

    I figured this was News, since I hadn’t seen images of the repainted Megatron & Ultra Magus figures. If I’m wrong, then I apologize.

    That Roadbuster-coloured Magnus is really nice.

    Yep, first image of Roadbuster Magnus. Doesn't look half bad, although it looks like the head is still blue a la early Eliute Guard Bumblebee pics. I hope they fix that for release, and maybe change the color on the clear plastic on the shoulder cannons and hammer. Probably won't pick it up unless there's a show specific reason for him to be that color, but it looks alright.

    If that 25th Anniv. Prime has long smokestacks.... and a Roller that actually launches.... I might consider buying it.

    Magnus' redeco is kinda nice. The angle of the photo makes him look like a God, though.

    I'm pretty sure he's already been confirmed to have the short stacks.

    the two leader repaints are hideous and i find it funny that the two kids are playing with the worst toys shown. worst by far!!! i almost forgot how much of a tragedy movie "megs" was and is.

    A little bit less bulkhead-ish than I was expecting.

    If it were a new character I'd be sold, as it stands, it looks nice, but I doubt I'll pick it up.

    Oh HELL yes, I knew Roadbuster was coming but I forgot about him until this picture surfaced. There's no way I'm getting UM when this guy is coming down the pipe. I'm a sucker for green.

    Seeing the Roadbuster Magnus, is there any doubt he wouldn't make an awesome TFA Onslaught kitbash! I think not!

    They look pretty neat in my opinion.

    Camo colors are somethin' different for Ultra Magnus (he's always been white and blue (occasionally with red), and I'm always open for new stuff. Shadow Blade Megs actually looks pretty neat.

    So neat, but I'm gonna pass to get the regulars.

    Come to think of it, it does. It even has the Con logo in the center like the cross-over logo. Good eye.

    I just knew he'd be a Roadbuster homage, I wonder if they have new voice clips though, that would be sweet.
